Fourth Element Proteus -Features

Durawear Patches

Applied to the critical areas of the proteus to minimise the abrasion for other equipment at the shoulders and around the waist. The stippled pattern on the chest of the suit maximises flexibility and thermal protection and helps to speed up drying time.

Glideskin Seals

Smooth Glideskin at the wrists, and plasma seals at the ankles provide a highly effective barrier to water ingress and eliminate water flush through. In donning the suit - to avoid damaging the material, turn the seals up before putting the suit on and roll them down once the suit is on.

Hydrolock Neck Seal

With over 8 months of prototyping, this features a unique combination of glideskin, smoothskin and standard neoprene. The double seal virtually eliminates water ingress into the suit. An internal back panel prevents water entering through the zip from reaching the back. The neck collar is lined with glideskin neoprene and fits snugly around the neck giving a smooth, complete seal.
